We talked flax/carbon frames and the man told me himself they were stiff and compliant. He didn’t want to buy a frame from Asia and put his name on it; instead, he’s been working on a “green” frame and the next models are 100% flax.
A Huggacast of our interview will post later. Also note that we posted on flax earlier and I’d questioned it’s ride quality. Well, who am I to argue with Johan Museeuw. During our talk, I grabbed the rear triangle and it doesn’t move.
Cordarounds just launched their new Bike to Work pants and a pair are en route for us to test. We gave Cordarounds lots of input, suggestions, and ideas. The pants feature a reflective cuff and are designed for bike transportation. Also note that a reader spotted their photoshoot and the pants a few weeks ago and said so on our Longtail Fall Fashion photo.
